School days!!

By Shruti Abhishek Shetty

I miss those days when-

I heard my name loud in the morning,

and woke at an instant and said my prayer.

I poured the hot water from the bucket, 

some on bathroom tiles and some on me.

I miss those days when-

I ate the corn flakes and drank Horlicks,

while mother braided my hair.

I heard the horn of the school bus,

and I rushed with socks, shoes and bag in hand.

I miss those days when-

I missed the school prayers,

because the bus was late.

I enjoyed the class singing and dancing,

as the teacher was absent.

I miss those days when-

I had my seat reserved in the bus,

where I returned home with homework.

I had my lunch ready and the tv chanel set,

when mother asked how was the day.

I miss those days when-

I slept in the afternoon and got up soon,

to finish the tuitions and then play.

I returned home all clay and mud,

and greeted father after his all day run.

I miss those days when-

I finished my homework and food,

to fill my bags for an another day.

I did my reading and writing,

and went to bed with my favourite toy.

I miss those days when-

I woke up the next morning,

to see the sky full of clouds and rain pouring.

I got a call from a friend,

and I heard -“today there is no school dear!”

And I really miss those days !!
